Text Messages to Speech To hear your text messages converted to speech: 1. Tap the Voice Recognition key, or Start > Voice Recognition 2. Say "Check Messages" The Q9n will read your messages aloud and ask if you want to reply. "You have one new message" "Message from Alana" "Would you like to hear message" [Yes] "Dad I will be home in a few minutes" "Would you like to reply?" The RAZR2 was supposed to do that about two years ago. Not a bad feature.
